Why Honors at Morris?

If you’re pursuing a competitive career track, Honors makes you distinctive and demonstrates that you’re curious, motivated, and dedicated.

While the program requires completion of several courses, there’s plenty of room to make it your own. In the gateway course to the program, IS2001H Traditions in Human Thought, you undertake a significant research project that suits your interests and may complement work you’re doing in your major(s). You can then further expand on this field by developing an Honors co-curricular project, designed to connect coursework in the Honors Program to co-curricular activities like internships, national student exchange, or study abroad. Finally, the Honors capstone project is a way to carve out yet another dimension of your interests. With some forward and 360-thinking, you can scaffold these projects to develop well-rounded expertise in an area.

In addition to double (and sometimes triple) majoring, Honors students are deeply committed to campus and community life. They are athletes and tutors and gardeners and community advisors and globetrotters and interns and artists. They are singers and dancers and explorers and mentors and change-makers. Participating in Honors means that you’ll be spending a lot of time with cool people. Isn’t that what college is for?
